Want to thank @Bindestriche for the retweet. Inspired the need to vent my thoughts in this🧵
An article on Peter #Thiel & his vision, to me a sign: we need to reclaim our #future & not let #techgurus take over.
Let’s start to look at our daily routines: fast pace thru … 1/21
#digital tools for working, shopping, researching, studying. communicating & more, made possible by mostly #SiliconValley’s tech companies for a “convenient” life. And I wonder if this is really the concept of the #goodlife that I dreamed of in my childhood? …2/21
..& will it be favored by unborn generations? It seems we are letting a certain type of tech vision take over.
Let me try to look behind that future that seems to be favored now:
As I see it the few leading tech companies now are mainly white men in their 30‘s & 40‘s … 3/21

#Pakistan #trade

Iversen & Rosenbluth (2010) argued that female representation is higher with strong parties & PR.

Establishing personal credibility is less important, so career disruption isnt penalised

Their sample is OECD, but it may partly explain how South Africa’s parliament is 42% female
Fantastic book.

- Services (not industry) catalysed major changes in FLFP, wage equality & norms
- With rising opportunities, parents encourage daughters to be independent
- Labour protections suppress women in management
- Political systems (not jobs) impact pol. representation
Within their OECD sample, female employment rises most rapidly in sectors with non-firm specific skills, e.g routine manufacturing.

Employers who hugely invest in workers’ firm-specific skills (in industry, services & regulated economies) are less likely to promote women.

With @StateBank_Pak releasing dissaggregated #trade data for December, we have a picture of the full 2021, which, despite #supply #chain disruptions worldwide, was 'good' for #Pakistan. Short thread below:
1\ #exports grew by 30.1% in 2021 w.r.t. 2020, with a strong pick up in merchandise, but also substantive in services.

#trade #Pakistan
2\ To be sure, in #real terms, #Pakistan's #exports remain below its local max in 2011. So, no 'record exports' if we talk real terms and not values.

1/ Malgré la forte hausse de $FTM - @FantomFDN, Je pense qu'il reste l'un des L1s les plus sous évalué actuellement.

Ce thread a pour but de vous présenter ce projet. Image
2/ #Fantom est une plate-forme de smart contract.

Contrairement à ce que la plupart des gens pensent, ce n'est pas basé sur la blockchain, c'est basé sur le #DAG. Une technologie dans laquelle plus le nombre de nœuds participant au réseau est élevé, plus les TPS est grand.
3/ Le projet vise 6000 à 20 000 TPS (transactions par seconde) vs l'#eth qui est à 13 TPS.

Il faut aussi savoir que #Fantom est compatible avec #Ethereum car il prend en charge les smarts contract pour Ethereum VM (EVM) en natif et hors de du réseau #ETH.

ANNUAL REPORT: The @wto #Services Council (=full membership overseeing work under the General Agreement on Trade in Services, GATS)

It's 10 pages so just a highlight

#TradeInServices

1/4 docs.wto.org/dol2fe/Pages/S…
Electronic commerce and services:

This now covers 3 areas

1. The moratorium on tax on cross-border electronic commerce (a topic as old as the WTO itself)

2. “Invigorated” discussion on boosting digital capability, from this paper: docs.wto.org/dol2fe/Pages/S…

2/4
3. The on-going friction over negotiations in a sub-group of only part of the membership (“#plurilateral” talks, officially “joint-statement initiatives”, JSIs, seen as a way to progress when the membership is deadlocked) versus objections.

“A couple” = India and SAfrica

An efficient #GST with high boyancy, needs uniform 15% rate on 3/4th of Goods & services, exemption(0%) on basic food, drugs, health services & education(~1/10 of G&S), & higher rates (avg 30% inclusive of cess) on cigarettes & Autos(~1/10th). Drop higher revenue/rate obsession
2/gst The #GSTcouncil's obsession with immediate revenue raising by increasing rates, is damaging macro economy, by negatively impacting MSME/informal employment, income & consumption, and doing long term damage to inclusive growth and sustained higher revenues for development
3/gst Though in normal circumstances I recommend revenue neutral reform, in current depressed environment, revenue negative reform of GST is preferable to revenue positive GST reform, because it will provide a demand stimulus which will quickly recover the short term revenue loss

Today’s personal income and consumer spending data for June reaffirm our view that the reopening continues to drive a powerful #restart — and there’s still room to run. 1/4
In the #services sector, particularly #leisure and #hospitality — which bore the brunt of lockdowns and restrictions — the #spending splurge continues as consumers make up for lost time. But spending is still a little more than 3% below its pre-pandemic level in real terms. 2/4
On top, consumers still have a large war chest of accumulated #savings, a good share of which we expect to be deployed over coming quarters, further strengthening the restart. 3/4 Image

1/1 A thread offering some reflections on the #SydneyOutbreak of #COVID19 #DeltaVariant and ending the #SydneyLockdown from a #socialmarketing perspective.

First, behaviour is driven by more than individual psychology & trying to motivate people to do ‘the right thing’.
2/14 The socio-cultural & structural environment also shape people’s behaviour 🙄 Yet, this receives less attention in policy & health behaviour change efforts. This is where a Strategic Social Marketing can come in. au.sagepub.com/en-gb/oce/stra…
3/14 Social marketing uses #marketing & #SocialSciences principles to encourage health #behaviourchange. And it has been used before to tackle pandemics 🤔 ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…

In exactly one month, I'll be leaving Bertelsmann Stiftung and start a new challenge. But before I leave, I would like to (re-)share some of the highlights of my work over the last five years. So join me for a little time travel and lots of still relevant research!
When I joined @GED_Tweet in 2016, the #trade world seemed still ok: the WTO still had the Appellate Body, TTIP was a political priority, Brexit had not happened and Trump was still an unlikely presidential candidate. Lots was going to change...
One of my core projects was research on public opinion and #trade. Our first publication was triggered by the intensifying debate on TTIP in Germany - but went beyond that: bertelsmann-stiftung.de/en/publication…

Opposition is screaming about Inflation,but India under @narendramodi has curbed #Inflation,versus global peers

#VegetableInflation in India is minus 1.92% in May&Food inflation 5.01%

Globally,#FoodInflation up 39.7%, Cereal up 36.6%,Wheat price up 28% &Maize 89.3%

My thread👇
Globally #Inflation is rising because of co-ordinated fiscal stimulus,that has led to asset prices,zooming;For instance,annualized inflation in USA is 9.7%;2yrs back,US was in throes of #Disinflation

$6 trillion stimulus by #Biden has led to too much money chasing too few goods
For those wanting to know why the difference in #WPI&CPI,figures well,weights of items in CPI are based on average household expenditure,taken from consumer expenditure surveys

Weightage of Primary articles in #CPI is 55%+,with Food group alone having weight of 39.06%

Excerpts from "'America’s Post-Pandemic Geography' - Covid-19 is transforming all types of communities, from big cities to suburbs to rural areas" - from the Summer 2021 Issue of @CityJournal - by @Richard_Florida & @joelkotkin. A #Thread.

The article → city-journal.org/americas-post-…
1. "The #Pandemic will pass...But in geographic terms, today’s Covid-precipitated crises may well prove to be the most transformative event that #America has experienced since the great migration to the suburbs after World War II."
2. "....centrifugal forces pull some people out of #Cities: families seek more #Affordable space, backyards, and access to better schools. With the wider scope of choice that #RemoteWork affords, some are casting their nets wider and moving farther afield..."

Following some hoopla that my tweet 👇🏻 caused…

1. I want to applaud all the medical workers in #Montenegro - epidemiologists, support staff, technicians, nurses, doctors - who are at the front line, caring for the many sick people in the hospitals around the country (🧵1/10)
You are the unsung heroes!

I want to make sure that what I’ll say is #not meant to indicate that the #services you provide in 🇲🇪 are not good - I know that you are doing your very best, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart (2/10)
*reminder: health services is not a synonym for health system

My comment that it doesn’t make sense to use #CFR (or as was referred to ‘lethality’) for comparisons between countries, and as a mirror of the quality of health system quality is based on the following facts (3/10)

Is #concentration rising? @AffeldtPauline, @JoannaPiechucka, #KlausGugler and I use a novel dataset containing information on over 20,000 relevant antitrust markets between 1990-2014 to assess this question: cepr.org/active/publica…. We find quite some heterogeneity. A thread 1/N
The extant literature measures #concentration using #industry classifications. Data are mostly aggregated at the national/regional level for all products. Yet, both the #geographic and the #product market definitions should be based on the #substitutability among products. 2/N
Our database identifies over 20,000 product/geographic #antitrust markets affected by over 2,000 mergers scrutinized by the European Commission between 1995-2014. This allows measuring concentration consistently on an economy-wide basis over time (diw.de/documents/publ…) 3/N

The turn of the calendar year invites the temptation to prognosticate regarding the course of the year ahead for the #economy and for #markets, and not being immune to that impulse, here are our views on the “11 themes to consider as we look toward 2021:” bit.ly/386mb0r
In preview, one key theme is that 2021’s nominal #GDP growth is likely to surprise many skeptics with its strength. The sources of upside surprise can be found in: 1) the new #fiscal #stimulus combined with structural budget #deficits
And in 2) the @federalreserve’s ongoing asset purchases and 3) the impressive #economic momentum that is still broadly underestimated, as a post-election, and #pandemic-recovering world can catalyze 2020/21’s monetized #stimulus (more than 15% of GDP) into impressive NGDP growth.

#UK #employment no.s show the horrendous cost of #lockdown leapfrog and all the other government stupidity during this pan(dem)ic.
Toll on self-employed getting on for 1 in 10
Total, economy-wide hours worked off 9.1%
1/x

#COVID19(33) #ONS
#private sector #jobs down 422k (-378k ex rail worker shift). Public sector up 143k (+99k ex-rail).

Of the 280k total, 7 out of 8 lost by those starting out in life, 16-24 yo; within which more than 1 in 4 of 16-17 yo jobs gone, "POOF!!"
2/x
#redundancies have more than tripled from 106k to 370k, while #vacancies have fallen from 848k to 547k.

This means that everyone newly #unemployed now has 1.5 openings to chase versus 7.7 a year ago. Good luck with THAT!
